:hello: Hi everyone...any more out there apart from little old me?? :question:

Went and viewed 3 venues at the weekend, came away and thought about it/costed up...and booked our venue and registrar on Monday - eek!! can officially start to get excited now :T Have a bit of a challenge on my hands in that I'm planning this wedding from a distance - getting married in my hometown in North Wales...but I now live in West Yorkshire (about 2 hour journey) so can't exactly pop round to sort things out. Luckily my mum and dad are quite good at these things so that will be really helpful.

  • Hi MrsDS2be! :wave:

    i've provisionally booked them - can't actually go and give notice until 12 months before...already put the 20 Oct 2011 in my diary to make the appointment! lol

    Whereabouts are you based/getting married then? have you booked anything yet? i've only got as far as the venue....next on the list: Insurance!

    :)

    How do you provisionally book them?

    Weve booked our venue and have a planning meeting on 3rd April :)

    Were getting married in a hotel call the The Place in Manchester City Centre

  • I just rang the registry office in the district where I'm getting married and asked them their availability on the 20 Oct 2012. She said they were free and if I paid a deposit then the date and time would be secured. She then told me about having to wait until 20 Oct this year to give notice, but we have to give that in the district where we live. Then once she had confirmation of that she would send out the "getting married" pack.

    How much was the deposit you had to pay? I know the full figure for the registra on the day for us is about £350.

    I would have waited until a year before:rotfl:

  • I think the fee varies in different areas - total for our wedding is £235 - I paid £100 deposit, and will have £135 left to pay on the day (or couple of days before whichever it is) plus the cost of the wedding certificate (£3.50). We will also have to pay £67 to give notice (that's for the 2 of us) - I think the giving notice price is set though no matter where you live.

    Maybe give them a ring and see if they are free to do your date...wouldn't want you to be disappointed. x

    I tried ringing them but there was no answer so i have sent them an email asking what the deposit would be

    Yea, the giving notice is the same fee up here too

    Weve been in contact with a magician who were arranging to meet and see how we get on.
